One Moonlit Night/Un Nos Ola Leuad
Published in both Welsh and English, One Moonlit Night is set against the backdrop of a Welsh slate quarrying village
A semi-autobiographical work, Prichard's novel focuses on a young boy and his widowed mother. As the boy's world falls apart, we're shown his feelings of loss and devastation, and his grief after the death of his father.
A deeply personal novel, One Moonlit Night is presented in Welsh and English translation side by side. First published in 1961, it is a rare insight into the mind of a child, and a deeply personal exploration of emotions.
One Moonlit Night was chosen by nature expert Iolo Williams as his Welsh book of choice.
